DIRECTOR HOWARD J FORD’s
FAMILY FILM CREATED TO GET KIDS OFF DEVICES AND ‘BACK OUT THERE’, SWITCHES GEARS AFTER THE LOCKDOWN AND HAS BECOME THE FIRST FILM TO DONATE PROCEEDS DIRECTLY TO OUR NHS

 Adventure Boyz, a Family Adventure from the safety of your couch!

Brighton, UK (April 7th, 2020) – The director of global horror-hit ‘The Dead’ and multi award-winning thriller ‘Never Let Go’ (Released by Sony Pictures/Netflix) has not only taken a spectacular twist in career path by bringing his first family film to the screen with Adventure Boyz, but is now donating 25% of all proceeds from the newly released DVD to the NHS.

Originally inspired by what Howard considered to be the ‘Global Disaster’ of children focusing on devices rather than engaging in real-life adventures, Adventure Boyz is the world’s first feature film to inspire children to, as the tag line puts it ‘Get off your device and get out there!’  Ironically its original Easter UK release date sees most of the world unable to do just that!

So regardless of its successful screening at the Cannes Film Festival and the film’s release across the US and Canada, Adventure Boyz, which promises to take audiences on an unforgettable journey across the Sussex countryside with thrills, spills and laughs-a-plenty, can only now take place in the safety of your own home.

Howard says ‘It’s not the release I dreamed of but everyone is having to adapt in some way right now and I’m proud of the fact I have not only made a film that can be enjoyed by all ages, but also to be able to donate 25% of all proceeds from our DVD sales here in the UK to the NHS, our real-life hero’s, is an absolute honour’.

Howard was driven to create Adventure Boyz to demonstrate to his own children, Rory (9) and Felix (7), that the most exhilarating experiences are in the real world and by casting them as the leads in the film it ensured they experienced their very own unforgettable adventure. With an outlandish plot revolving around Speedway racing, stolen jewels from a royal castle and escaping bumbling criminals on BMX there is plenty of action and a lot of laughs too.

 “If I were a carpenter, I’d have made them the best tree house I could, but I’m a filmmaker, so what else could I do?!” exclaimed Howard.

Adventure Boyz co-stars Jon Campling (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Final Fantasy,), Angela Dixon (Never Let Go, Homeless Ashes, Blacksite), and introducing Rory and Felix Ford as the Adventure Boyz.

Dark Sense, Scottish thriller feature film online and DVD release

New Edinburgh feature film DARK SENSE is released online on Amazon Prime and on DVD on the 13th of September 2019.

It’s not just the Avengers and the Fast and Furious that are making the most of Scotland’s fantastic scenery and stunning locations. New independent thriller DARK SENSE is the ambitious debut feature film of Scottish director Magnus Wake. Wake says, “We wanted to make a film set in Scotland that was about telling a great story, that would entertain. Scotland has a well-deserved reputation in creating films around social justice, but we also need to show we can punch above our weight in creating thrilling entertainment.”

Dark Sense was shot around Edinburgh in 2017 and features notable talent such as Shane O’Meara of Waterloo Road, Jim Sturgeon of Casualty, James Robinson the young Wallace from Braveheart, as well as guest stars Siobhan Redmond, Gordon Kennedy and Sanjeev Kohli.

The film has met with worldwide critical success winning awards in the US including Best International Film at the SENE film festival. It recently was selected by FRIGHTFEST, the UK’s largest genre BAFTA festival which described the film as, “A knockout, cleverly plotted, heart-pounding thriller.”

Based on Amazon bestseller First and Only by Peter Flannery, Dark Sense tells the story of Simon, a young man with unique abilities. He can see into the future and is connected to a serial killer who he knows he must stop, even if it means being his final victim.

Dark Sense is available from Amazon Prime

The DVD features a 33 minute behind the scenes ‘making of’ documentary that covers the crowdfunding, development and shooting of the film. The DVD also features the directors and authors commentary.
